I had a heck of a time finding the right color off the shelf in a rattle can.I priced mixed paint sprayer and all the crap that goes with doing the job it was just not worth all that cost.I went to my local west bay/Napa store we spent about 40 min. searching the books to find the right color.I did learn something i would like to share the paint number in on the top side of the fiber board covering your spare tire.That info is good but it is still costly to spray your self unless you have the equipment already.I found my color sort of :roll:
I used Dupli-Color Part# BCCO351 Flash Red it took 5 cans they are 8oz each and cost around 6.99 each I paid 6.30 each but that was with a small Discount.This color is for Chrysler as you can see from the Pictures its really close the 5 cans gave me 6 coats.JV&S and i started the temp install (they had not been painted yet) using nut inserts and found after installing one or two of the nut inserts its just easy to drill small holes and use some good screws.

It will look better with the 14 inch wheels and tires in it that's next.

JV&S Time for Coffee?????

that does give it a more lowered stance. however are you planning to paint your front and rear bumper covers ? the black looks funny . and then bigger wheels ?

Rustoleum sunrise red is about the exact right color too, I did the front bumper on mine with it. The rest of the paint is a bit faded, but it matches the original color.

and the mirrors too:

I hope you used stainless hardware for these, the screws under the car and in the wheel wells are very prone to rusting.
